that governor romney is spending some time with his family. and my hope is, before the end of the year, though, that we have a chance to-- to sit down and talk. you know, there-- there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. and, well, to give you one example, i do think he did a terrific job running the olympics. >> reporter: no word on when such a meeting could take place. >> ifill: in case you missed it, you can watch the complete news conference on our web site. coming up, more from the president's first post-election news conference on the investigation into the generals' scandal and his second-term agenda. plus, israeli air strikes in gaza and one family's battle with meningitis. but first, with the other news of the day, here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: the president's challenge to republicans today on taxes sets up a new confrontation in congress. even before the white house news conference, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell warned again that raising rates on high-income earners will have almost no effect on the def
to mitt romney. governor, is the president pressing his luck or is this what you do when you win an election? >> it's what you do when you win an election. in the long-term it's really needed. if we're going to do four or five trillion dollars of a debt deal, you have to have that level of revenue. i think we can have it. the meeting with the ceos is very important. as you know, judd gregg and i are co-chairs of the campaign to fix the debt. business has responded big-time. they've given over $35 million for a public relations campaign and business has to take the message to the republicans in congress that we're serious about this. this has to happen. it has to happen with significant revenue and that revenue not only comes from raising rates on the top 2%, but it comes from getting rid of a lot of loopholes. some plans with governor romney espoused during the campaign. >> there's a difference, governor, isn't there, between funding an organization that says get something done and funding an organization that says raise our taxes by a lot, right? they're not the same necessarily
, good evening, as you know this conference call just wrapped up hours ago, governor romney blamed this defeat on what he described as big gifts that the president had given to some of the democrat's most loyal voting blocki blockinging block. he called it the old play book rule with specific interest groups. he said with regard to young people, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. he added free contraception was very big with college-aged women. and finally, he said obama-care made a difference, likewise with hispanic voters, health care was a big plus. he is scheduled to meet with top advisers tomorrow night. one thing is sure in terms of his future. he said the donors may play a part in helping him select the next republican nominee, but it won't be romney, he said. >> just off the trail, peter alexander, about to get much-needed rest, thank you for being with us. >>> overseas there is serious concern that a new war in the middle east just became more likely, after the israelis took out the top commander of hamas in a tough attack. more on the report from marti

250,000. the middle class can't take tax hits. >> might we see a meeting between governor romney and president obama? >> i would love to see it. >> i don't know if that would help. >> i think one of the things governor romney has been quiet. as most folks are when they lose. but the president said he wants to sit down with him. i don't think it's a shake hands take a bunch of pictures. i think one of the things that has to happen on both sides is reaching across the isle now. it's the good time to do it. republicans need progress as much as the democrats. going to get both sides nowhere. >> i don't think mitt romney is the leader of our party. he has no negotiating power. might have a beer summit, probably not a beer summit. >> a milk summit. all right. peter, jordan, thank you so much. see you next week. tony, over to you . >> thank you all very much. papa john's pizza is coming under fire to what it did to customers after the delivery. we'll explain. and mark kelly is in town today. we'll tell you what for and how you can meet him. it's 9:40. we'll be right back .

said that you were looking forward to speaking with governor romney sitting down in the coming weeks to discuss ways that you could work together on this nation's problems. have you extended the invitation, has he accepted, and in what ways do you think you can work together? president obama: we haven't scheduled anything yet. i think everybody forgets the election was only a week ago. i for i have forgotten. i forgot wednesday. so -- i think everybody needs to catch their breath. i'm sure governor romney is spending some time with his family. and my hope is before the even of the year we have a chance to talk. there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. and to give one example, i do think he did a terrific job running the olympics. and, you know, that skill set of trying to figure out how do we make something work better apply to the federal government. there are a lot of ideas i doesn't think are partisan ideas but are just smart ideas about how can we make the federal government more customer-friendly. how can we make sur
in benghazi as an act of terrorism on september 12th, then emphasize that in his second debate with governor romney and we now know that in an interview with 60 minutes on the same day, he explicitly refused to characterize the attack this way and then spent nearly two weeks putting the emphasis on a spontaneous protest including his address to the united nations on september 25th? why did our ambassador to the united nations in interviews five days after the attack also try to blame on the hitful video when it was clear from the earliest hours of the attack that it was a sophisticated offensive, that no protest ever occurred outside of our consulate in benghazi and if ambassador rice was relying on intelligence assessments, why were those so dramatically at odds with the earliest reports from our people on the ground? and perhaps most importantly, why does the administration still appear to have no policy to deal with the fact that al-qaeda and affiliated groups that have established sanctuaries in eastern libya, a government eager for our assistance. this is perhaps the most troubling ques

and governor romney and your wives were shocked by the results that were coming in. true? >> it is true. yeah. the polling we had, the numbers we were looking at looked like we stood a pretty good chance of winning, so when the numbers came in going the other direction, when we saw the kind of turnout that was occurring in urban areas which were really fairly unprecedented, it did come as a bit of a shock. those are the tough kind of losses to have, the ones that catch you by surprise. >> some critics jumped on those remarks and said historically urban has often been used as a code word for african-american voters. we can't say for sure what ryan meant there. but keeping them honest the election day picture was a bit more complicated than that. turnout among african-american voters was up this year and turnout was up in swing state cities but down in others. and the presidents win was not solely dependent on black or urban voters. he also won more than 7 in 10 asian, latino voters, 6 in 10 young voters and 55% of women voters nationwide. what's more, white voters played a big role in the pres
interesting numbers to me, maybe not surprising in the polls, was the president obama defeated governor romney among self-described moderates by 15 points. so this is an expression. and he asked a lot of complications complicated questions about who are they. a lot of people would say that president obama is centerleft. but it's all compared to. compared to governor romney, and i think really the republican party, including the statements that todd akin and richard murdoch made, it seemed like they were are off from the center. as an independent, i can give advice to both parties. >> ronald reagan and jack kemp -- the party of upward mobility, that didn't seem to be the republican party this year. now, maybe it was because of this very effective attack campaign against mitt romney and bain capital and 47% of all that stuff. but i think hispanics and asians -- and a lot of women, they didn't vote for the republican party not just if you are hispanic because you think their anti-immigrant, but because it doesn't seem like the kind of party that will create a country in which you are were going t
million people that voted for governor romney my question is do you hear our voices? the democratic party speaks about compromise. do you hear the voices that we have put across to you guys? at this point we need real compromise. do you see anything happening on the horizon that will take our voices, the people that voted against raising taxes into account, is this something we will see some, or will the fiscal fiasco drag on forever? guest: we are hearing your voice. we are hearing everybody's voice. we have looking at this in balanced way. in order to have balance, you have to make sure that the scales are not to it. in terms of the tax policy, the truth of the matter is scales have been tipped in favor of the wealthy. we really want balance. a report showed that over 90% going back to 2010 show that 90% of the income -- 90% of the income growth went to the upper 1%. people favor a more balanced approach where everybody does their fair share, including the very wealthy. this is not an effort to punish. it is an effort to say to people, "do your share." we are listening to everybody. the
those two great attributes with the former president. and governor romney, he's a problem solver, he's a business person. he knows how to read a balance sheet. he knows how to make numbers balance in a good manner. i was heartened this morning on the front page of the "new york times" when senator conrad talked about he was receptive to, open-minded about this capping of deductions at the higher income level. that's one way to go at it. so that was really the thought behind the piece. >> guys, did you ever have a tree stump on your lawn you just had to get rid of so you got your neighbors all together and start hacking away and finally you had to pull the damn thing out? think of mitch mcconnell as that tree stump. there he is in the way of you cutting the lawn. he shouldn't be there. he's not growing. he's not getting any better. today mitch mcconnell did not signal, a big surprise, he was ready to compromise. the tree stump ain't moving. let's listen. >> the time for the president to lead is now, and that means offering a concrete plan that takes into account the fact that half the
with governor romney and we now know that in an interview with "60 minutes" on the same day, he explicitly refused to characterize the attack this way. and he then spent nearly two weeks putting the emphasis on a spontaneous protest to a hateful video including in his address to the united nations on september 25th. why did our ambassador to the united nations in interviews five days after the attack also try to blame on the hateful video when it was clear from the earliest hours of the attack that it was sophisticated, that it was a sophisticated offensive that no protest ever occurred outside of our consulate in benghazi and if ambassador rice was relying on intelligence assessments as she insists, why were those assessments so dramatically at odds with the earliest reports from our people on the ground? and perhaps most importantly, why does the administration still appear to this no policy to deal with the fact that al qaeda and affiliated groups have established sanctuaries in eastern libya, a country that we helped to liberate and which is an elected a pro-american government that is
presidential rival. listen to this. >> i think everybody needs to catch their breath. i'm sure governor romney is spending some time with his family. and my hope is before the end of the year, though, we have a chance to sit down and talk. there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. and, well, to give you one example, i do think he did a terrific job running the olympics. >> then he went on to say there were several other excellent ideas that mitt romney raised during the campaign, worthy of explor exploring, wants to sit down and talk to him. gloria, i thought that was nice of the president to make those comments. don't know how mitt romney will respond, but i assume he's the president of the united states, he was re-elected, romney being a great american as he is will say, i would be happy to do whatever you would like me to do. >> i think if the president reaches out to him to have a discussion it clear mitt romney would have it. i don't think he's got a job in mind for mitt romney, but one of the things the president may have been
conservative journalists that felt it was a cover-up and saw the debacle in the debate with governor romney when he attempted to bring it up and never the did again in a debate form. here you have the politics of re-election behind us. what do you make of the president's answers regarding mbenbenghazi and especially aga this issue with susan rice? >> i think that's a good point and possible that the president feels like the last time someone attempted to politicize this issue they lost and angry that he perceives that's what's being done and what we saw was a tone, a very aggressive tone, a sort of a swagger, i think, from the president that he feels that, you know, someone asked if he felt he had a mandate and the answer is clear more than anything in his tone and the way that he came out pretty aggressively on almost every issue and talked about how he was going to -- how he was going to fight and clearly believes if the republicans choose to take him on they'll lose and the republicans firing back immediately. they clearly differ with him. >> to your point of clarify, the president talki
] [no audio] [no audio] -- what was arguably governor romney's finest moment of the campaign. the first debate. it's a thank you very much for being here. our title today is the future of the republican party. that assumes of course that has one. [laughter] and let's start by talking about the election because he played obviously a crucial role in ohio. i want to get a sense of you're now seeing reports that the campaign was very surprised by the outcome, even right up to the evening of election day because the polls were showing something different. your polls are showing something different than everybody else. if thatcher and how surprised was the campaign? >> will first, it was a very close election in ohio. ohio is one of the key states. even if we want it turns out the electoral vote count would've gone to president obama. we lost by two points in ohio and recall back in 2004, when john kerry lost to george bush, he would often say both publicly and to me on the floor of the senate, but perhaps the people could fit in the ohio state stadium i'd be president today. so was a very na

were looking forward to speaking with governor romney, sitting down in the coming weeks to discuss ways you could work together on this nation's problems have you extended that invitation? has he accepted? and what ways do you think you can work together? >> we haven't scheduled something yet. i think everybody forgets the election was only a week ago. i know i've forgotten, i forgot on wednesday. i think everybody needs to catch their breath. i'm sure that governor romney is spending time with his family. and my hope is before the end of the year, though, we have a chance to sit down and talk. there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. to goifcu -- to give you up with example, i think he did a terrific job running the olympics. and that skill set of trying to figure out how do we make something work better applies to the federal government. there are a lot of ideas that i don't think are partisan ideas but are just smart ideas about how can we make the federal government more customer friendly, how can we make sure that we're
second debate with governor romney? and we now know in an interview with "60 minutes" on the sail day he explicitly refused to characterize the attack this way? and he then spent nearly two weeks putting the emphasis on a spontaneous protest to a hateful video including in his address to the united nations on september 25th? why did our ambassador to the united nations in interviews five days after the attack also try to blame on the hateful video when it was clear from the earliest hours of the attack that it was sophisticated, that it was a sophisticated offensive? that no protest ever occurred outside of our consulate in benghazi and if ambassador rice was relying on intelligence assessments as she insists, why were those assessments so dramaticly at odds with the earliest reports from our people on the ground? most importantly, why does the administration still appear to have no policy to deal with the fact that al qaeda and affiliated groups have established sanctuaries in eastern libya, a country that we helped to liberate and which elected pro-american government that is eager for
word the thanks to our own nominees, governor romney and congressman ryan. they may not have won the race, but htey earned our respect and admiration. they fought valiantly for the cause of limited government, free enterprise, opportunity for all, and a stronger social safety net that is there when people need it most. they fought for the kind of constitutional conservatism americans believe in so very strongly. their lost says nothing to diminish the importance of these enduring principles or our commitment to keep fighting for them. we thank them. we thank their families for making the sacrifices in the presidential campaign demands. i want to assure everyone the cause goes on. on ot the task at hand -- in politics, there is always a temptation among those who win office to think they have a mandate to do what they will. it is the important to remember in this case the voters reelected a republican- controlled house last week and a closely divided senate. in a government of three equal branches, that is hardly irrelevant. most people may focus on the white house, but the gover
down and talk. there are certain aspects of governor romney's record and his ideas that i think could be very helpful. and, well, to give you one example, i do think he did a terrific job running the olympics. what i want to do is to get ideas from him and see if there's some ways we can potentially work together. >> ana, i think they can work together. not necessarily right away. but i could easily see a day when the president and mitt romney they get together on some major projects. >> yeah, mitt romney sitting somewhere right now wondering why didn't he say that two weeks ago. but look, i think it's a very gracious gesture. it would be symbolic bipartisanship, but i'm not sure his priorities shouldn't be smoking the peace pipe with lindsey graham and john mccain who are in the senate and can help with the legislative agenda. i'm not sure what base mitt romney represents right now within the republican party. but it would be a wonderful gesture. and i think it's the right thing and the right tone for the president to set. >> cornell, why are you smiling? >> because i'm stunned. i do
